About Richard and Jackie Smith

Jackie and I grew up in the Pacific Northwest before settling in Lodi, California wine country in 1991. We enjoy Hawaii for the remarkable way the people, views and experiences completely dissolve all stresses for a true relaxing vacation experience.

Richard and Jackie Smith purchased this condo in 2008

Why Richard and Jackie Smith chose Wailuku

Ma'alaea Kai is an often undetected property in the central valley of Maui on the south coast. The property is maintained immaculately with arguably the nicest lawn on the island. The proximity to the swimming pool, barbeques in addition to being on the first floor which makes the large private lawn like your own backyard. Waking to the sun rising out the beach bedroom window directly over 10,023 foot Mt. Haleakala is one of the highlights of a trip to this property.

What makes this condo unique

If you are searching for the best all around experience Maui has to offer you will not be disappointed in this property at Ma'alaea. Being in a quiet area and the most central to all attractions and sites on Maui this condo will meet all of your getaway expectations.

Clean, Convenient, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This property is on the ground floor with the pool just outside. Being on the ground floor allowed us to come and go from the condo while enjoying the property as an extended living space. Perfect for whale and Turtle watching! Love this place!

Better Than We Imagined

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing!! Everything about it was great. The best thing was the location. It was in a quiet area away from the crowds and centrally located for all the thinks we wanted to do. We could walk to the marina and catch any excursions we wanted. We loved just sitting on the patio and watching the whales jump in the bay. It was better than the whale watching boat we went on. Richard was very flexible to work with and always responded quickly to our questions. It was our first trip to Maui and it was perfect. We hope to return soon.

Perfect for our family of 3

  • 5 of 5

Ma'alaea Kai is a great property in an ideal & central Maui location. The location of Unit 110 on the ground floor was great with an infant who on the move. Richard & Jackie are great hosts providing all the basics you need which is very helpful, in addition to some amazing extras (e.g., beach chairs, fully stocked kitchen, etc.). The unit was clean, spacious - and the trade winds added ample breeze to keep things cool.

The neighbours are very friendly and there are lots of Canadians escaping the cold weather at home.

Another great point of this property is the proximity to the pool and BBQ area as well as the small beach at the end of the street. The walking distance proximity to the Maui Ocean Centre (Aquarium) is also an added benefit. Only a 10-15 minutes from major shopping centers so it is easy to get everything you could possibly need.

We felt very safe and our little one had a blast exploring the green lawns. We were able to see whales right from the lanai, and enjoyed all our meals outside.

After 6pm, things quiet down which is another nice plus for a family with young children.

We really enjoyed our time staying in unit 110 and look forward to returning again in the future.

Great Place!!! Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay...... Once we kinda figured out the tv & to switch on the dishwasher power, we were pretty set!

The bathroom & bedroom were pretty dark as some of the light bulbs were burnt out & we couldn't find any extras. But all in all things were good. We loved that we could walk right out to the grassy area & the pool was right there!

One little thought, would be to put up or print out a few more instructions in the condo on how to use things or maybe we just missed them because we were so excited to be there. Whatever, it was a wonderful experience & the next time I am back on Maui, I will contact you. I also will be referring your place to others. Perfect for a restful, beautiful place to hang out!

Oh yes.......... nice & clean...... very important to me....

A family vacation dream come true

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Jackie's home in paradise exceeded our expectations. My wife and I are familiar with the Maalaea Kai and have grown attached to the location and incredible ocean front views. For 2017, we planned a family vacation with our 4 girls so a two bedroom unit was a must. With two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, spacious kitchen, living and dining areas, this was perfect for our family of 6. The condo is very clean and modern with every convenience anyone could ask for.

Watch turtles play in the surf, relax by the pool or just lounge by the ocean - all on the property. A walk down the road opens to a sandy beach with surprisingly good snorkeling opportunities. Maalaea village with shops, great restaurants and the Maui Ocean Centre is a 5 minute walk away too. Located within an easy drive to Lahaina, Kahului and Kihei, I don't think there could be a better location on Maui.

Mahalo, Richard and Jackie. We are already thinking of our next visit to paradise!
